This exhibition presents a selection of recent works from the ON-AIR Project by the Korean contemporary artist Atta Kim (born 1956). For these large-scale, visually spectacular color photographs, Kim employed extended exposures—sometimes as long as eight hours——to explore fundamental questions of time and perception. Using such varied subjects as parliamentary sessions, soccer games, outdoor military exercises, and erotic unions, Kim suggests that it is possible for us to perceive the passage of time in radically different ways.
